25.05.09 - iStream®
Our company was set-up to develop the iStream® automotive manufacturing process which we hope will help to revolutionise the way the world builds cars. Weâ€™re nearing the end of the first phase of developing iStream® as weâ€™ve reached a major milestone.
We now have a running vehicle, our laboratory car called Lizzie - Thereâ€™s a tradition amongst the team that goes back to the F1 Road Car project where all laboratory and prototype vehicles were given a name. For the F1 project they were named after English Kings, the SLR project they were named after German Kings and weâ€™re following the Royalty theme once more with English Queens.
We held our 1st Drive Demonstration Event on Friday 29th May which was a resounding success â€“ I can honestly report that out of all the first prototypes Iâ€™ve driven, Lizzie is the most complete and cohesive. The drive was fantastic!
Itâ€™s only a matter of weeks until we have a full running prototype complete with body and interior as weâ€™ve started the assembly of XP1 whoâ€™s official name is yet to be agreed.
The final milestone of the first phase of the company will be to engage with customers and weâ€™re working really hard to keep the T.25 in the UK.
